STEEMFEST Unity: The Real Reason We All Came Together

in steemfest •  2 years ago

Never before had anything come together like this:

7 weeks in planning
from idea to flawless execution
31 countries represented by 185 users
65% male, 35% female
young and old alike,
the experienced alongside the brand new

@everlove and I traveled 42 hours and 4911 miles
to get to Amsterdam
by plane, train, tram, car, boat, bicycle, and on foot
to be part of something special, historic, amazing, and powerful.
Y’all know what I’m talking about;
everybody felt the magic! 

Brilliant minds from the crypto and tech worlds,
talented artists,
marketing geniuses,
and beautiful babes with big brains
gathered in one place
for one reason.

Drawn together from separate corners of the globe
ignited and inspired by
the word on everyone's tongue,
the thought in everyone's mind,
the call in everyone's heart:
STEEMFEST

PANCAKES! 



@roelandp did an amazing job of bringing us all together to eat pancakes on a glorious Sunday in Amsterdam, 



We marched through the streets to the beat of our chant: Pancakes!


@cryptos, @onceuponatime, @opheliafu, @burnin, @roadscape, @me, @xeroc, @blocktrades, @timsaid, @originate


We scoured the blocks and found our Dutch pancakes



prepared in a courtyard by @roelandp’s father and brother from a family recipe for pancakes.



So we celebrated pancakes



@xeroc


and we rejoiced in pancakes



and we came together for pancakes



@robrigo and @roadscape



Just a bunch of crazy dreamers and visionaries hungry for change crepes ( @firepower ate 3! ),



@onceuponatime


we all left a little richer than when we came.



 

Some people even stayed to talk about Steemit.



Here are the talks live streamed (live steemed?) from Steemfest Saturday:

·

·

Great photos, I would double upvote if I could!
I think that's @meister on the far left, and @daniel.errey in the back...and I cannot tell who the gentlemen turned to the side are...

This is exactly the post I've been looking for! Thx so much Sara!

Seriously undervalued, I agree!

We'll just have to eat a lot of pancakes for a while

Ahhhh, I can taste them right now, the most wonderful pancakes ever. I NEED pancakes! Is it too far to fly back to get more?

·

No, we'll meet you there!

·

Heading there now without luggage this time, just extra room in my belly for PANCAKES!! Thank you @roelandp and family!

I get the impression you kinda enjoyed the pancakes :)

Thanks for bring it home to us!!

·

Bringing us all together!

yoga all the way for this pancakes? :-)

·

Absolutely! I'm told that @roelandp's family owns a windmill where they grind the flour themselves

·
·

:-) fresh as it can get. nice.

My goodness, the deliciousness here is off the charts!

Hi Sara. This is so random, I know, but I've just noticed that airbnb offers 'experiences' now, and I thought of you, and how cool would it be if you offered a yoga course/tour/experience. I'd sign up for that :)

·

Hi @furion, how lovely of you to stop by! Thanks for letting me know about these experiences. We have a cob cottage on our property (it is a sweet little house we built by hand out of dirt) that is listed on airbnb, and I will update it with some services we can offer! I'm also thinking to add it to SteemStays, which I understand is like airbnb for Steemians. We have another space (I call it the Penthouse) that we are currently preparing to list on these sites; my dream is that a Steemian will like to move in and use it as an office and living space. I would love for new friends like you to come visit and better yet to stay for awhile!
